Ultrasound

If they are just doing the ultrasound of the axilla, which may not include all the components of a chest ultrasound, it is probably best to code it to an unlisted ultrasound 76999. Report needs to confirm what was done, but was mediastinum included? If not the chest ultrasound shouldn't be used.
